Quinoa Breakfast

You know how I mentioned I've been eating quinoa most days lately? Well it's because I've been eating this almost every day for breakfast! Since I began nursing my son, satisfying my appetite has been quite a challenge- I seemed to be hungry just an hour after first eating breakfast. When we were wrapping up our stay in Japan our food options were lacking terribly and most of the foods we typically had around for breakfast (milk, cereal, yogurt) were out of stock in our kitchen. I woke up one morning and saw quinoa, eggs, avocado, and salsa.


Mix: 
1/2 cup cooked quinoa
2 scrambled eggs
1/2 avocado cubed
salsa, lemon pepper, and garlic salt to taste


This meal for breakfast is so incredibly satisfying. Rather than being hungry an hour later I feel full almost four hours after. The little guy loves it too and I know it's packed full of goodness for him! 

Next time I whip up a batch of quinoa for breakfast I think I'm going to try cooking it in vegetable broth. Have any of you cooked your quinoa in vegetable broth?

  3. That looks amazing and super healthy!! I usually cook my quinoa in chicken stock to give it extra flava flav so I'm sure veggie stock would be just as delish :)
